Come and build with us!

 

Constructive play is a key stage of all children’s development, setting the stage for pre- tend play. The session will be an opportunity for children to work together to develop their constructive play skills, as well as their language and motor skills. The program can also help foster pretend and symbolic play, showing children how different objects can be built from the same materials.

 

This program is suitable for children with limited constructive play skills, including children attending a specialist educational setting.

Different HCWA, NDIS or FFS pricing for all programs.
